Seat leon fr 150 tdi

7 posts in this topic

I have been looking to change my car recently for money reasons. My first thought was the leon fr (not the new model). Nice looks, nice mpg and ok performance for around the £12k mark. My thoughts started to drift towards civic type r's and clio 182/197 etc but after more consideration i want the lower running costs.

Sooooooo anyone had any experiences with these or heard any good or bad things about them.

Thanks for any help.

They're basically a Golf in a cheap dress. There's not much other than the dreaded camshaft wear issue which hits many of the 150bhp motors, and the usual sticky turbo problems which happen to all the diesel engines, but if you're serious about looking into one check out SeatCupra.net and read up on what they have to offer. 169144-ok.gif
